Reviewer: brewster - - September 14, 2009
Subject: Wonderful book
Katie Hafner has written a gem with this one. I found it a special book because it is about 3 people doing their job very very well: glenn gould, the piano tuner, and rotating people at steinway. It seems rare these days to have stories of people doing their job well, and since most of us spend most of our waking ours doing our job, I find this disappointing. Thank you, Katie.

This is a Test Book only that we are using for testing the Bookserver, so it is not for public consumption or distribution.

Alpha 1 version of the ePub is here.

Alpha 1 version, but this time chunked into smaller files (to work on things like the sony reader) of the ePub is here.
